Apply a Little 'Narnia' Magic with NUKE
Transform Your Projects - Breath Life Into Them
Want to bring a project to life? Compositors are responsible for piecing all the elements together within a scene, but also for telling a story that is both natural and believable. By including a few simple procedural paint reveals, you can help make your scene more dynamic in the subtlest of ways. Whether you’re creating a heat haze effect out of a jet engine, adding a ripple effect to water, enhancing a volcanic epi-centre, or making your own cool glowing daemon spirit, there is a way to enhance and bring those basic elements to life.
